This is looking really promising! We waited so long for this but it paid off. The Grimm brothers look really cool. I am looking forward to see all other classic fairy tail characters by the hands of CLAMP! It’ll be interesting to see CLAMP designs in a suspense/horror story. That doesn’t happen very often!

I think this has a bigger international appeal than if this was a completely original anime. After all, the Grimm brothers stories are known internationally.

I love the fact that they used CLAMP’s art for the teaser. They are the big star of this project, after all!

I wonder if WIT will do justice with CLAMP’s style.
